I dont like it when people ask for suggestions and some dumbass leaves a link to a google (or anything) search for that topic.

void main() is the single most stupid things people do in here. sometimes I think it can be justified with a google link but it probably is over used.

Sometimes when people figure out what they did wrong they just post"Don't worry I got it working" and no explenation on what they did to fix it.

I have not seen many people openly admit when they been wrong, I think that is kinda arrogant.

I spell really bad, I need to get better at that.

I agree with Muttski. Why should I bother searching for info when I can get all you suckers to do it for me [\irony]

LMAO, the problem is that sometimes you don't quite know what words to look for on googles.

The one thing your missing is that www.some stupid tutorial.com answers the question instead of someone haveing to retype it 100 million times. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=clear+the+screen+c%2B is also a valid response when it generates a list of information all pertaining to the topic and will also answer the question. It also basically states that the person recieving the 'link' answer should probably consider getting off there arse and actually doing something (anything!) to help themselves before asking the question.

I rather enjoy the people who leave references to google searches and tutorials. The tutorial normally explains more than the person would have anyways and it saves them a lot of typing. The google engine is so vast (as are programming topics/words) so it is good to see what words get results and what ones dont. Often times I've searched pages and pages of google on a topic and not found anything. Then I ask here and someone else searches but uses different words and gets good results. Two brains are much better than one.

>flame suit

i assume you meant flame _retardant_... :)

and i agree with bubba... a lot of times i only end up using the 'net for this site and flashdaddee... and i spend hours staring at the screen anticipating someone to reply to my aktif or something... [which is rare]... but links lead you to more interesting things and different things, which is great!

btw, anyone know a nice classical guitar message board bychance? like this one! :) thanks!

I'm not sure about a classical specific board, but you might want to hang out at www.harmony-central.com and ask around there for one (maybe start with the guitar jam forum). Otherwise, www.olga.net has some IRCs, but I've never been on them. Also, you could look at fingerstyle forums as many fingerstyle guitarists play classical as well or did at one point (like myself).

thank you tgm. i also found guitarsite.com which has lots of resources about it. by the way, how long have you been playing? and how were you introduced to classical guitar? etc. sounds very good.

DA:
I've been playing since about 1994 (give or take a year). My dad and step mom both play as well so I've been rather spoiled. We've got over 20 guitars in my family (around $40,000 worth, mostly acoustics).
I grew up listening to my dad play acoustic and classical and playing his Leo Kottke, Chet Atkins and Christopher Parkening records and stuff. I guess I was brain washed into thinking "Alice's Restaurant" is a great song. I eventually got bored playing rock stuff and moved to fingerstyle for a challenge.
The classical stuff I do is mostly to help work on my technique and music theory. I figure if you can play classical stuff well, you can play just about anything.

>My dad and step mom both play as well so I've been rather spoiled.

i can relate, everything i use is either my fathers or brothers. in fact, i myself have never actually bought a single guitar. fortunately my pop coincidentally had a spare nylon string and i'm taking that up again as a new challenge as well. it's so freshening isn't it? i just love counterpoint. i often bring it to school and it occured to me that since i have a nylon string guitar, i may as well should be playing classical music for others right? right. and all this drilling makes all that other stuff, even jazz, seem really simple in comparison. :) right now i'm learning 'air on a g string' by bach. do you still play classical? do you find time to pratice still? how old are you?

I'm 22. Since I'm currently looking for a programming job (and don't have one) I have a lot of spare time that I spend playing. I'm working on Mason Williams' solo version of Classical Gas right now and Kottke's Ojo.

I do have plenty of my own gear.
Jasmine/Takamine cutaway (for a beater 6 string),
Taylor 414K (one of my babies),
Sunburst American Std Telecaster (my other baby and previous dream guitar)
Peavey Patriot (which I stripped, stained and hotrodded)
Jackson/Charvell (my first guitar and awesome for heavy distortion)
Peavey Fury Bass
and finally a Sho-Bud Maverick pedal steel.
Plus an old Peavey 2x12 amp, Alesis monitors and power amp and lots of effects processors and stuff.
